About Susan Welton

Hi, We’re Walter and Susan , and we welcome you to our island (Well, it’s not our island. We don’t own it; it’s far too large.)

Having been residents of Big Island before Kona had a single stoplight and nothing stayed open past 5pm, we’ve watched our town grow and change. Thankfully it remains as charming and full of the Aloha Spirit as it did when we moved here in 1979 (with a few extra amenities).

Walter spent his career as a contractor building high-end custom homes for happy clients and Susan spent her career flying high in the friendly skies as a flight attendant for United Airlines.

Over the past 30 years we have built countless of our own homes together, and we wanted to combine that building expertise and our love for travel and adventure to create the ideal vacation home in paradise.

Walter has a great talent for creating beautiful, well-crafted spaces and Susan is a master at making a house a home. Together we know staying at Kona Sunset Hale will be the experience of your lifetime.

It is our aim to make you feel as though you’ve come to stay with friends. There is nothing quite like the Land of Aloha, and we are so excited to welcome you to it.

Aloha,

Walt & Sue

Why Susan Welton chose Kailua Kona

Its a funny story - We tried to sell it twice, it kept coming back.

So, we got the message and decided to build on it instead. But since we already had a home we like, we chose to build one for you. It has just been completed, with NEW almost everything.

This property is magical, come see for yourselves.

Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this delightful home with amazing views of the coast. Owners are nearby so there was no need to chase anyone down for answers, and their proximity made us feel very secure. Excellent well-equipped kitchen so we could take advantage of the variety of local products to prepare some of our own meals. Plenty of information about the area and its attractions were provided. We will return!

Wonderful Place for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Kona Sunset Hale with our adult sons and daughter-in-law. We arrived after a long day of flight delays and almost missing our connection to Kona. We arrived without luggage as it didn't make the connection but nothing seemed to matter once we arrive at this beautiful home! We instantly felt relaxed and Sue and Walt met us at the house with the keys They stayed only long enough to welcome us and show us some of the features of the house. We really felt as if we were home! The house is exactly as it appears in the photos, nothing has been exaggerated, it is just that beautiful! We enjoyed all of our meals on the lovely covered lanai just taking in the spectacular view. The kitchen is beautiful and well equipped. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are very luxurious. It was a treat to have our very own private pool. We stayed only 5 days and that was really our mistake, we should have stayed much longer! I can't recommend this property highly enough. We can't wait to go back!

A SPECTACULAR vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Kailua Sunset Hale is an amazing villa. From the moment we walked in, we were "blown away" by the view.(even though we had seen the pictures on the website) The owner was there to welcome and greet us, and show us the house. This home is in perfect condition, is beautifully decorated, and has too many luxurious touches to list. There is a large veranda and manicured garden, all of which have a 180 degree view of the ocean. The experience of staying there for two weeks was relaxing beyond description. We often shortened our days of touring just to get home in time to celebrate those unforgettable sunsets.

A spectacular family vacation getaway...

  • 5 of 5

I want to give sincere thanks to Walter and Susan for providing this impressive home. As we left, I could not help but already fast forward to thoughts of returning. I am positive that our return will revolve around an opening at this hale. Hawaii was amazing, but the thoughts that stand out are BBQs on the Lanai, family dinners prepared in the kitchen, game time at the dining table, laughter in the pool and remarkably all which were accompanied by stunning views of the coast. It was a continual conflict of playing tourist and fighting a desire to rush home to a secluded, relaxing time at our retreat. We loved every minute of both.

For those considering.

The home is spectacular and provides a wonderful vacation atmosphere. It is clean, modern, comfortable and vacation functional. Lounging on the patio, overlooking your children, overlooking the pool, overlooking Kona, overlooking the Pacific...simply ideal. The amenities were fantastic. The bedrooms were comfortable and spacious. It was always a pleasant cap to the day crawling into bed and starring out into the moon glow over the ocean. The bathrooms provided plenty of freedom and ease for a family of six to concurrently prepare for the day. The kitchen left nothing to desire. The appliances were modern and pleasure to have access to. We took full advantage of the beach gear…boogie boards, chairs, towels, umbrellas and more. It made our day trips to the beach effortless. This I write with a smile…trips to the beach specifically out of town and with children is often a frightening task. This is a wonderful getaway for those looking to enjoy the island and family time simultaneously.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

One of the best home rental experiences that we've ever had. Having two master suites at opposite sides of house made for perfect privacy. Our 2 1/2 year old grand daughter loved the yard and pool. The adults really enjoyed having cocktails in the evening watching the gorgeous sunsets.

The furnishings, bathrooms, kitchen, and flooring were all upscale.

It was convenient having the owners next door to answer all our questions about the island.

The house is also in an easy to reach location in a quiet neighborhood with grocery stores and town less than five minutes away.

Owner's Response: Mahalo LInda for the very nice review. Just a note, to let potential guests know; yes, we live next door but that is approximately an acre away with various plantings and rock walls to provide you with total privacy. ( and us too.)

Trip of a life time - beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 weeks at the home with our 2 year old and newborn sons. Everything was perfect. Susan and Walter the owners have really thought of everything to make your stay wonderful and luxurious. The home is brand new and beautifully decorated with high end finishes and designer décor. There are 2 master suites with very large bathrooms - 5 star quality. The pictures shown on the website are beautiful and when you arrive, the home is everything you expect and more. The lanai was our favorite part of the home. There are several seating areas and a table/chairs where we ate every day and enjoyed the beautiful view of the ocean below. Sunsets in the evening were gorgeous and we spent many nights just sitting on the lanai or swimming in the pool watching the sun go down. Our 2 year old loved swimming in the pool and running in the grass. It is a great home for kids - safe and secure.

The home is well equipped for families who want to cook meals at home, kitchen supplies are all there and like new. We had a really hard time thinking of anything that was missing - even after a 5 week stay. Walt and Susan - the owners live next door and were extremely helpful and hospitable. They would offer us limes, mangos, jam, butter, etc.. and anytime we had a question about the island, they were eager to help and offer suggestions.

The upkeep of the home and pool/yard is outstanding. Landscapers came nearly every week, pool cleaner every week, lawn was nicely mowed and manicured every week or so and home was immaculate when we arrived. the quality of the towels and linens were also very high. For beach days, chairs, umbrella and beach towels are provided and again high quality.

If you are looking for a beautiful home for your stay on the big island, you will love it. We are already planning to come back next year.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for such a great Review Colette and Darron. It was a pleasure to have you as neighbors for 36 days! Just to let those of you reading the review know, there is an acre and a 6 ft Rock Wall between the properties with tall plants ( 9ft and growing). TOTAL privacy for all. And we are seldom home:0

We enjoy 21 of the 23 climates in the world, which presents us with multitudes of choices every day. From snowboarding/skiiing on top of Mauna Kea to swimming with the mantas.. All in one day if you wish. We often experience the red lava flow of Kileauea Volcano, strolling through a lava tube, and hiking the surrounding area. The waterfalls are refreshing and can be seen from Akaka Falls to Waipio Valley. You can plant yourselves on a black sand beach along side the turtles who rest there daily. Golf, golf. and more golf. The west side of the Big island is a golfers paradise. Courses designed by Jack Nicklaus and others of his notoriety. Challenging at times but always filled with the beauty of the ocean and the mountains.

Hungry? We have the flavors from the most renowned chefs to the best ' local style' foods. A luau is a must do just to experience the tastes of the islands. Our beaches are like no others we have ever seen. Many are hidden from view, so you will not find them crowded with people, instead you will find turtles ( honus) resting, palm trees swaying, and a pool of aqua warm water waiting your arrival. The Big Island is a surfers dream. We have summer spots brought from the south and winter spots brought by the north. There are beginner breaks and breaks for those without fear. We also have a terrific surf lesson beach for those of you who want to give it a try.

We have hiking, biking, running, walking, for all levels.

I really can't think of anything we don't have... except snakes.

Which is a good thing, especially when you are on that that treacherous forest trail. :) Please enjoy our island, you will marvel at the calmness and beauty offered to you while you are here... its called 'Aloha Spirit' We look forward to meeting you.
